Malcolm X's Daughter, Granddaughter Arrested for Animal Cruelty (MUG SHOTS)

EXCLUSIVE

Malcolm X's daughter and granddaughter have been arrested after allegedly stealing a U-Haul which contained a bunch of mistreated dogs.

Malikah Shabazz and her daughter, Bettih Shabazz, were in Maryland Wednesday when cops found a box in the truck containing dogs with injuries ... so say cops who add the dogs were "kept in inhumane conditions."

They've been charged with 7 counts of animal cruelty, vehicle theft and an additional charge of theft between $10,000 and $100,000.

They've been released on bail.
